Technical Data

All you could ever want to know about skins!

Climbing skins are a product of trade offs and balances:

  • Weight vs. Durability
  • Cold Temperature Adhesion vs. Propensity to leave residue on skis
  • Glide vs. climbing power.

To help weigh the costs and benefits associated with each choice, we have distilled the technical variables of climbing skins into four main concerns: Climbing Grip vs. Glide Adhesive Properties.
